Philharmonix brings together three members of the Vienna Philharmonic, two Berlin Philharmonic soloists, one of the most versatile Austrian pianists and an improvising and singing violinist for a deliciously heady cocktail of classical, jazz, klezmer, Latin, even pop music… and yes, good old fun. With their signature blend of the “highest philharmonic quality and unrestrained joy of music-making” (Kurier, Austria), Philharmonix are synonymous with entertainment.
Classical music is not supposed to be fun, right? And yet, every Philharmonix concert is a living, grooving, finger-snapping testament to the contrary. Surprise! Classical music at its most refined can be a jolly good time for everyone. This unique ensemble’s sophisticated sense of humor allows them to move seamlessly from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again, taking the audience along for a madcap roller-coaster ride. The ensemble has already performed with great success at Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Berlin Philharmonie, Vienna Konzerthaus, Munich Herkulessaal, and Philharmonie Luxembourg among other prestigious venues. Their debut CD “The Vienna Berlin Music Club Vol. 1” with Deutsche Grammophon has been released in February 2018 and was awarded the ‘Opus Klassik Award’ in October 2018.
